    Thanks for your help I did the scan and got the P 302 which was a misfire on my 2nd cylinder, I replaced the spark plug wires with a set of Bosch wires and all is good :) thanks for the speedy reply, I will recommend your site to other friends with mechanical trouble!

Whenever the "Check Engine" light comes on, there is always a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) stored in the ECM (Engine Control Module). You'll need an OBDII (On-Board-Diagnostics) scanner to retrieve any codes recorded/set in ECM. Once you do this and let us know what, if any codes are set, then we can go from there. These codes are important because they POINT you/us in the right direction regarding location of the problem or the system which is causing the problem. Waiting to hear from you.

My 2007 Impala 3.9l has bad issue. On cold start if you try to drive it has no power, spits and sputters and the rpm gauge quits working, warmed up for 10 minutes car runs fine


Going with power lose. Check the grounds. Main three are from the battery to engine, battery to body, and engine to body. I wold check for codes, even if the light is not on. There could be some pending.

What is causing it to sputter when i first accelerate


Take the vehicle to an Autozone or Advance or Oreillys for a free diagnostic as long as the "check light" is on. This will give you one or more possible causes for the problem.

The coil could be breaking down under normal operating temps, or the pick inside the distributor. Either that or you may have oxygen sensors that are going bad, do you have a check engine light come on when it acts up?

95 chevy g20 van started to lose power while driving and began to spit and sputter


Ck your alternator output, should be between 13.8 and 14.2 volts, A bad alt will cause the battery to discharge when driving, Once voltage drops to a certain level (9.8 I think ) the ecm starts to shut down causing all kinds of strange problems, like running bad ,trans not shifting right, even the radio ! It happened to me in my 95 chev p/u
